This Chicago apartment recently received a 500$ room makeover courtesy of The Every Girl and the lucky winner was a 29 year-old copywriter and fashion blogger. I had to share this with you since the room’s color scheme goes perfectly with my black, white and brass/gold obsession. While the room’s a little on the girly side for me, I love the art gallery wall and the chic home office area. Every part of the room has a little touch of glamour which I think is important, especially when you work from home. I’d love to catch more than just a glimpse of that kitchen! From what I can see, it looks really cool with its retro diamond-pattern floor.
I came across this great DIY idea on That Nordic Feeling blog. Bare-bulb pendants are very trendy right now and I love how this one is paired with a wooden Ikea bracket. The Muuto E27 lamp comes in a variety of colors and if you’re up for trying this out, you can also paint the bracket your color of choice. Here, it was kept in wood to give the look a Scandinavian, natural feel. The process itself is pretty simple. All you need is a drill. The whole living room is pretty great actually—I love the color scheme, the mid-century coffee tables and her choice of graphic art.
